. president obama said he'd do it. he said he'd end this relentless push for war. he promised to get us home from afghanistan, promised most of all to abort a war with iran. and now he's gone and done it. and we've got the makings of a deal with tehran. to stop explosive conflict. he's done what he's promised. the total opposite of "w" and dick cheney and the neocons. thank god we're at least trying to do the right thing. and the biggest news is that elections do count. candidate obama said he'd change the direction of foreign policy. now he's done what he said he would. tonight we see the lines of battle on every front. obama's trying peace, the other side pushes towards war. obama's party is pushing for democracy in the u.s. senate, the other side hugs the filibuster and the ready chance for default. obama's trying to provide health care for the 40 million uninsured, the other side proposes nothing while ted cruz, of course, proposes nothing but war at home and abroad. yes, on a clear day like today, you can see forever. and what a choice between obama and his enemies. make your pick. howa
